Maria-Margarita was the daughter of Prince Ferdinand of Sardinia and his wife Marie Elizabeth of Saxony.

On 9 January 1878, Umberto succeeded as the new King of Italy. She became his Queen consort and remained by his side for the rest of his reign. Umberto was assassinated by anarchist Gaetano Bresci on 29 July 1900.
Queen Maria-Margarita encouraged artists and writers and founded cultural institutions, notably the SocietÓ del Quartetto, and the Casa di Dante. She was a benefactor of many charities, especially the Red Cross.
